Abstract

Linear spectral mixture models used to invert mixed spectral responses of a target into proportions of plant and soil components at the Earth's surface lack the biophysical interpretation of the results. The paper aims to relate the decomposed properties of the surface with the known biophysical properties of the surface. A radiative transfer model was used to generate mixture reflectances using the measured optical properties of pure components. The method is applied to subsets of a nadir image of the Advanced Solid State Array Spectroradiometer.
